LIGHTING DESIGN CALCULATION FOR CLASSROOM

Cross section area of classroom = 69 = 54 m2, h = 3m


Lumens required = 54300 = 16200 lm

The below table is a reference table for calculating Utilisation factor for light fittings. It differs from model to
model and make to make. For just understanding the concept we are using a single reference table for all the
light fittings. The actual table is provided by the manufacturer and can be little different from the one below.

UTILISATION FACTOR TABLE FOR SHRRoom = 1.5
Reflectance code for classroom = 752
i.e. 70% reflectance for ceiling, 50% for wall and 20% for floor (General standard for white/light coloured
walls)
For R.I. = 1.8 and reflectance code = 752, Utilization Factor(U.F) = 0.66
For Classroom/Office Maintenance Factor = 0.8 (Standard)

Where N = Number of luminaire required for given area


E = Average luminance over the horizontal working plane
A = Area of the horizontal working plane
n = Number of lamps in each luminaire
F = Lighting design lumens per lamp, i.e. initial bare lamp luminous flux
UF = Utilisation factor for the horizontal working plane
M.F. = Maintenance factor

If we use Philips Green Perform LED Batten Of 40W


Lumen/Watt: 4000lm/40w
Lamp Colour: Neutral White 4000K
Colour Rendering Index >80
Lifetime L70* : 50,000 hours
LIGHTING DESIGN CALCULATION FOR CONFERENCE ROOM
Cross section area of Conference Room = 69 = 54 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 54300 = 16200 lm

For R.I. = 1.8 and reflectance code = 752, Utilization Factor (U.F) = 0.66
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips Ultraslim Round LED Panel Light 22 W
Lumen/Watt: 1760 lm/22 W

Lighting Design Calculation for Hall


Cross section area of hall = 313 = 93 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 93215 = 19995 ~20000 lm

For R.I. = 1.82 and reflectance code = 753, Utilization Factor (U.F) = 0.66
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips MASTER TL5 High Efficiency ECO 35 W
Lumen/Watt: 3650 lm/35 W
Colour Rendering Index 85
Average Lifetime: 25,000 hours

LIGHTING DESIGN CALCULATION FOR STAIR CASE WIRING


Note: read more about Stair Case wiring installation.
Cross section area of stair case = 6.42.7 = 17.28 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 17.28215 = 3715 lm

For R.I. = 1.26 and reflectance code = 752, Utilization Factor (U.F) = 0.55
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips MASTER TL5 HIGH EFFICIENCY ECO 35 W
Lumen/Watt: 3650 lm/35 W\
Colour Rendering Index 85
Average Lifetime: 24,000 hours

Lighting Design Calculation for Toilet WC


Cross section area of WC Toilet 1&2 = 1.4251.2 = 1.71 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 1.71215 = 367 lm

For R.I. <0.75 Utilization Factor (U.F) table not applicable


M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips TL Miniature 8 W
Lumen/Watt: 410 lm/8 W
Colour Rendering Index 60
Average Lifetime : 10,000 hours

Cross section area of WC Toilet 3&4 = 1.51.8 = 2.7 m2, h = 3m


Lumens required = 2.7215 = 580 lm

For R.I. <0.75 Utilization Factor (U.F)


table not applicable
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips MASTER TL5 HIGH EFFICIENCY ECO 14 W
Lumen/Watt: 1350 lm/14 W
Average Lifetime : 40,000 hours

So we can use single LED tube in sharing for both the bathrooms.
Lighting Design Calculation for Toilet Washroom Area
Cross section area of Washroom = 66.6 = 40 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 49.5215 = 10642 lm

For R.I. = 1.05 and reflectance code = 752, Utilization Factor (U.F) = 0.49
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips Pacific LED Waterproof Batten 35 W
Lumen/Watt: 4200 lm/35 W
Colour Rendering Index 85
Average Lifetime: 50,000 hours

Note: The luminaires should be placed equidistance to each other for uniform distribution of light in the room.
The actual number of luminaires used in the classroom will be less than what we have calculated since the
utilization factor of LED lights is better than what we have taken in the calculation although steps will be the
same.
